His Word My Life

Let your love, God, shape my life 
    with salvation, exactly as you promised; 
Then I’ll be able to stand up to mockery 
    because I trusted your Word. 

Don’t ever deprive me of truth, not ever— 
    your commandments are what I depend on. 
Oh, I’ll guard with my life what you’ve revealed to me, 
    guard it now, guard it ever; 
And I’ll stride freely through wide open spaces 
   as I look for your truth and your wisdom; 

Then I’ll tell the world what I find, 
   speak out boldly in public, unembarrassed. 
I cherish your commandments—oh, how I love them!— 
   relishing every fragment of your counsel.

Psalm 119:41-48 (The Message)
